    Form1 Popup


    I'm getting random Form1 popups (see photo). I'm assuming this is Visual Basic. I can't seem to figure out what program is causing this and haven't noticed anything in particular that triggers it. Malwarebytes and Windows Defender scans haven't found anything.

    Hi,

    Yep, it sounds like you picked up a pup from somewhere, you're right it's a VB object of a poorly designed program, see if this helps: AdwCleaner If it doesn't try running it again in Safe Mode without networking. You could also re-try m-bam and defender in safe mode.

    @Anak, thanks for the link. It found 4 threats (see pic). Sorry I forgot to attach the image from the original post.

    So far it hasn't appeared again. I had to run clean and repair after rebooting though. Just wanted to make sure it was gone, and the AOL one still remained.

    Curious how I could've gotten these since I'm pretty vigilant about visiting only work related websites (except this forum).

    You're welcome,

    Check your browser extensions for AOL if there remove it, if not, look in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features for it and uninstall it from there.

    Curious? Somehow somewhere they snuck by you.

    I have a different suggestion to make regarding AOL. I fought this beast on my parents' PCs, both of whom were long-time AOL customers who decided to get off that bus and onto something faster back in the late 2000s (2007 or 8, if memory serves). It took me more than a day to figure out how to remove all traces of AOL from what must've been XP back then. Then I discovered the AOL Removal Tool at MajorGeeks. It's still there, and still worth using. Does an excellent job of cleaning up the aftermath. Use it with my encouragement and blessings.
    HTH,

    @EdTittel Malwarebytes blocked your link for malware. Sure it's safe?
    @Anak I had AIM installed last year (around May) and removed it shortly after. I haven't had any Form1 popups until about 1-2 months ago. They occur sporadically. Wouldn't think AIM would surface that far out, but anything is possible.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I was clicking the ad download button -- almost fell for it. Must get sleep (only had 2 hours over the past 24 hours).

    Had quite a few "remnants" of AOL/AIM that were removed. Thanks for the link. :)
